  • ArtCreation Expression oil colours set
  • Stretched canvas ArtCreation Elements 24 x 30 cm
  • Oil colour brushes of ArtCreation Elements (flat brushes for larger areas, smaller brushes for details)

Oil Colors
Tips
  • This step-by-step plan has been painted using the wet-on-wet technique: The painting process continued while the oil paint was still wet.
  • Before you start, go through all the stages.
Step-By-Step
Step 1
  • Lightly copy the drawing using charcoal or pencil. Leave out any details; these will be dealt with in steps 3 and 4
  • Paint the sky using ultramarine and cerulean blue. Paint the sky darker at the top and lighter further down. Mix blue with titanium white and a tiny amount of yellow. Use white for the clouds on the wet blue. Paint the land alternating between light and dark green (permanent green, yellow, ultramarine blue and titanium white).
Step 2
  • Paint the sky using ultramarine and cerulean blue. Paint the sky darker at the top and lighter further down. Mix blue with titanium white and a tiny amount of yellow. Use white for the clouds on the wet blue. Paint the land alternating between light and dark green (permanent green, yellow, ultramarine blue and titanium white).
Step 3
  • Use various shades of green for the trees. Mix Permanent green using tiny amounts of carmine deep, burnt umber or yellow. Use dark green for shadows on the trees (permanent green with a tiny amount of carmine deep or burnt umber). For the house use carmine deep and yellow ochre with white. Do not paint any details on the house. After all, it is in the distance and small details are then no longer visible. Make the clouds more intense with extra ultramarine and white.
Step 4
  • Paint the gate using burnt umber, titanium white and yellow ochre. For the olive branches in the foreground use burnt umber, yellow ochre, carmine deep and titanium white. Paint the olive leaves olive green (yellow ochre and a tiny amount of permanent green) and dark green (permanent green, and a tiny amount of red). Paint the olives olive green and yellowish green. Add patches of light using white/yellow. Create shadows on the olives using dark green (green and a tiny amount of red).

Acrylic colours


All you need is:
  • ArtCreation Expression acrylic colours set
  • Stretched canvas ArtCreation Elements 24 x 30 cm
  • Brushes for acrylic colours of ArtCreation Elements (flat brushes for larger parts, smaller brushes for details)
  • Pencil or charcoal
  • Kneadable eraser to fade any lines or to rub them out completely
  • Jars of water for thinning the paint and cleaning the brushes during and after painting
  • Tear-off palette
  • If necessary use a hairdryer to speed up the drying process
Acrylic colours
Tips
  • With acrylic colours do not paint too thickly but thin the paint with water on your palette. Try it on a scrap piece of paper first. Thin layers look good and dry more quickly.
  • Some colours are opaque, others aren’t. This will allow you to continue to see the colours when you paint over layers that have already dried. For example, white and black are opaque. Ultramarine, however, is not. When you paint Ultramarine over a dried layer of orange you will continue to see the orange through the Ultramarine. This will create beautiful effects. If you do not want this, the colour will first have to be made opaque by mixing it with an opaque colour such as Titanium white
Step-By-Step
Step 1
  • Lightly draw the fish with charcoal or pencil. Leave out any details, these will be dealt with in steps 3 and 4.
Step 2
  • Paint the fish in different colours. Use mainly warm colours such as yellow, orange and red for an attractive contrast with the blue sea. In order to get orange, mix primary yellow and naphthol red medium. For purple, mix primary magenta with primary cyan. In order to get yellowish green, mix primary yellow with permanent green dark. Paint the coral using green, blue and orange/red. Paint the sea using blue/green (primary cyan with titanium white and a little green).
Step 3
  • Paint the fish again as this will make the paint more opaque. Paint in the details of the fish. Create air bubbles using light blue and/or light yellow (primary cyan with titanium white and primary yellow with white). Paint around the air bubbles a second layer of a darker blue/green (add a little bit more ultramarine/green) and light blue/green (add a little more white); the dark along the edges, the lighter colour in the middle. Paint loosely, along the curves.
Step 4
  • Paint the eyes, using black, light blue and light green. Give the eyes a patch of light. Paint in the details of the fish. Accentuate the fish using black lines. Make the coral look livelier with various colours of green/blue and orange/yellow/brown. Paint the sea at the bottom right lighter. As if the light is shining through the water onto the fish and the coral. Use light yellow paint mixed with white for this and thinned with water. The blue of the sea is still just about visible through the light yellow.

Water colors
Tips
  • Before you start, go through all the stages.
Step-By-Step
Step 1
  • Lightly copy the flower using charcoal or pencil.
Step 2
  • Paint the first layer using water colours thinned with a lot of water. Paint the leaves pink/red using alizarin crimson and ultramarine. For the background use ultramarine thinned with plenty of water.
Step 3
  • Make the heart of the flower light by using yellow and leaving some areas white. Paint the buds olive green using dark green mixed with yellow ochre. Give the background a second layer using ultramarine that has been thinned less. The first layer must be dry. Add accents in the leaves by using the same colours but less thinned
Step 4
  • Finish off the flower with some details. Paint small dots/specks in the heart of the flower (burnt umber with a tiny amount of scarlet and ultramarine). Also use yellow ochre for the specks in the heart. Paint lines in the leaves (alizarin crimson mixed with a tiny amount of burnt umber and ultramarine). Create depth around the heart of the flower using dark pink (alizarin crimson mixed with a tiny amount of burnt umber and ultramarine). Paint shadows on stems, buds and leaves (alizarin crimson and mixed with a tiny amount of green).

Step 2
  • Paint the background, tablecloth, napkin and the whipped cream with thinned white paint. Paint the top of the cake orange/pink using yellow lemon, dark pink and white mixed. Paint the layers of cake with old rose (mix dark pink, a tiny amount of cobalt blue, a tiny amount of yellow lemon and white) and soft yellow (white with tiny amounts of yellow ochre and yellow lemon). Paint the cherry red (using dark pink mixed with a tiny amount of yellow lemon and dark green). Paint shadows on the whipped cream with greys (white mixed with black) and the edge of the paper light orange (yellow lemon, a tiny amount of dark pink and white). Use light grey for the bottom of the paper and white for the inside. Use light grey for the plate.
Step 3
  • Paint the squares on the napkin red. Paint specks on the cake layers (using white, pink, dark pink - dark pink mixed with a tiny amount of dark green - and orange). Paint some shadows on the cherry (by mixing dark pink with dark green) and paint some patches of light using white and light orange. Use dark green for the stalk. With white and grey you can paint the reflection in the plate. Paint flowers on the tablecloth.
Step 4
  • Paint dark orange stripes on the cake paper. Using various shades of grey paint some shadows on the napkin, on the plate and on the paper. Finish off the flowers with green leaves and red dots. Give some specks of colour to the whipped cream using very light orange (mix white with a tiny amount of orange).
